What's your budget. Because right now, you're coming out to about $1300. If you want to extend your budget a little more ($1082 more) with a crossfire, a better overclocking mobo, and an amazing CPU cooler...look no further. Because here it is. Also, you really don't need an ATX Full Tower Case. For this build, you only need a Mid-Tower.

Also, if you're gonna go for the Sabertooth motherboard, I suggest getting an i7 even a six core i7. Because pairing an i5 with that mobo is overkill in my opinion.
